    Sad to see this series go...

    In the beginning you find out that at the same time Shannon was having baby, Rhiannon was too. Rhiannon gave up her dark ways and sacrificed herself to save her daughter. Her daughter is sent to live with Richard Parker (Shannon's Dad). Divine by Blood is mostly about her story.

    I have to admit that at first I was a little disappointed. I didn't get to see as much of Shannon as I would have liked. However, I did love the parts we did get, and her interaction with her daughter. It's really sad for me to say good bye to her. She has become one of my favorite fiction characters.

    Once I got settled in to the story, Morrigan is a character I did enjoy. She was raised in Oklahoma, and always knew she was different. Of course, every teenager feels that way at some point. But in her case it is real. There was a lot of magic in this one. Morrigan's magic was great to read about. One of them was the ability to hear whispers in the wind, and not all of the whispers were good. The evil wanted to take her as their own.

    Kegan was a great character. I really enjoyed reading about him. Cast does a great job at creating couples you know are destined to be together, and you crave seeing them together. But my favorite character was Richard Parker. He was such a great guy. Cast said that he was written after her Dad. You can see how much of her heart she poured into his character, and it was impossible not to love him.

    The story moves at a steady pace. I was entertained throughout. Though the ending was my favorite part. It was beautiful. Cast nicely wrapped everything up and left me satisfied. Throughout this trilogy, I have laughed, cried, shouted and felt every emotion imaginable. Cast has given me a beautiful world that I will be escaping to again. Now that I have finished this trilogy, I am excited to move on to Elphame's Choice and Brighid's Quest. Both books take place in Partholon, but have new, younger characters.

    Divine by Blood was another win for me. I hope Cast continues to write, because I thoroughly enjoy her work. If you are an adult reader who is a fan of fantasy, you need to read this trilogy!

    I Also Recommend:

    Touching, thrilling, and Dranatic

    I was so moved by this book I had to come and write something about this wonderful thrilling and dramatic novel. I read A LOT and came across P.C Casts Marked Books and fell in love with her writing although I will admit some are much better than others. This book is at the top of the Must Read List. It sucks you in and you just can't put it down. You will not regret reading this book. If you love a book that moves you beyond words then this is the book for you. You will laugh and cry it will fill you with love, sadness, hope, and amazement. the only down side to this book is that its the finale book in this series and I know all who read it will be saddened that this series has come to an end.

    Amazing Series.

    This series by P.C. Cast is absolutely amazing. At first I was quite skeptical, but after reading the second chapter in the first book (Divine by Mistake) I was hooked. This book sucks you in and doesn't let go. You never want to set it down. It's very thrilling, and has a great romance twist as well. A wonderful series. Something that I will definitely read again and again.

    A reviewer

    Morrigan assumed she was a normal Sooner teen with wants and desires similar to her peers. However, when she turns eighteen, Morrigan learns the truth that she is not just an Oklahoma native instead she learns her roots are literally magically from a tree and a centaur. Her mother Shannon Parker wanted her daughter to avoid all the otherworldly woes that she twice faced (see DIVINE BY MISTAKE and DIVINE BY CHOICE), but now regrets her decision as Morrigan is outraged and upset.----------- Her explosion opens the portal to the world of Partholon, which she enters expecting to be treated with adulation and respect as befitting the offspring of the goddess Incarnate. Instead she is treated as an unwelcome outsider. Desperate to belong, she causes problems for the residents of Partholon as she is the Light Bringer whose efforts lead to a growing darkness that is engulfing the realm her only ally is a shaman centaur warrior---------- The third Divine fantasy is a major departure from the previous two and not just because the next generation is the mover and shaker. The story line retains the fast-paced rate established by Shannon¿s starring escapes, but provides greater insight into Partholon through the amazed, dazed and razed teen. This is one fantasist who knows how to cast a spell on her readers.------- Harriet Klausner
